The Johannisburg Castle is one of the foremost jewels of German Renaissance architecture. Its view is impressive, as the sunlight reflects off the red sandstone the castle stands upon. The castle used to be the second residence of the archbishops and electors of Mainz.
Today, the Johannisberg Castle and the Pompejanum dominate the city center of Aschaffenburg, which is located in the Bavarian part of the Rhine-Main metropolitan area. Aschaffenburg´s charm makes it an enjoyable and relaxing vacation destination.
